The Parsha Experiment – Nitzavim: How To Make Sense Of The Terrible Curses II

27 Elul 5776 – September 30, 2016

Last week, we found that to understand God’s curses at the end of the Torah, we have to follow a trail all the way back, to Creation, and the Garden of Eden

The Parsha Experiment – Ki Tavo: How To Make Sense Of The Terrible Curses

19 Elul 5776 – September 22, 2016

God promises us dark, sadistic curses, if we don’t live up to our responsibilities to Him. It’s so difficult to read, how could He be so cruel to us? Join us as we grapple with the incredibly difficult curses of Ki Tavo.

The Parsha Experiment – Ki Teitzei

12 Elul 5776 – September 15, 2016

Last parsha, we began to suggest that all of these random laws are somehow related to the 10 commandments! But what is the larger message that this list of laws is coming to teach us?

The Parsha Experiment – Shoftim: Is This Just A Boring Parsha?

6 Elul 5776 – September 8, 2016
 If the entire book of Deuteronomy is supposed to be Moshe’s rousing speech before the nation enters Israel, how can we understand the mundane text of Parshat Shoftim? Instead of inspiration, we hear law after law of seemingly trivial matters – witnesses, legalities, land boundaries. What is this long list of laws doing in the middle of this book, that is supposedly Moshe’s inspirational speech?

The Parsha Experiment – Re’eh: Why Would Anyone Want to Worship Idols?

29 Av 5776 – September 1, 2016

God doesn’t like foreign gods….but does He have to remind us over and over? And the people, too, seemed to be obsessed with foreign gods. What made avodah zarah so attractive, and therefore so destructive, that God needs to devote law after law to its eradication? And what does any of this have to do with us, today?

Torah Cafe: The Parsha Experiment – Eikev: Appreciating Our Creators

22 Av 5776 – August 25, 2016

God afflicted the nation of Israel through the past 40 years of the desert, withholding food and water from them…on purpose? How can we have a relationship with a God like that?

The Parsha Experiment – Devarim: Finding Inspiration From Our Past

8 Av 5776 – August 11, 2016
In Devarim, Moses gives a grand speech that at first glance seems like a boring history lesson with the least inspiring stories! But underneath Moses’ words is an unbelievable message that the nation of Israel needed to hear right before they entered the land. What we come to find is that the messages of Moses speech are still applicable and inspiring to us, today. Join us as we try to tackle the mystery of Moses’ speech.

The Parsha Experiment – Matot-Masei: Israel’s Psychological Journey

29 Tammuz 5776 – August 4, 2016

Parshat Masei begins with a recap of everywhere Israel has been so far on their journey throughout the desert. And you have to ask: who cares? Why is this here? As we’ve discussed many times, the Torah is not just a list of laws and stories. Each piece is meant to teach us some sort of timeless lesson. How does this travel log do that?

Common Blood Pressure Drug Prevents Post-TBI Epilepsy

23 Nisan 5774 – April 23, 2014

Israeli researchers working with an international team have discovered that a common blood pressure medication can prevent epilepsy from developing after a traumatic brain injury.

The discovery is described in an article published in the current issue of the Annals of Neurology.

Physiology and Neurobiology Professor Alon Friedman works at the Zlotowski Center for Neuroscience at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in southern Israel. He worked with Daniela Kaufer, UC Berkeley Associate Professor of Integrative Biology at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and Uwe Heinemann of Charite-University Medicine in Germany on the 10-year study.

In 60 percent of the experimental rats tested, the medication – losartan (Cozaar) – prevented the development of seizures following injury in which 100 percent of controls developed seizures. Of the 40 percent that did develop seizures, the researchers said the rats averaged only one quarter of the number of seizures typical for untreated subjects.

Medication administered for three weeks following injury was sufficient to prevent most cases of epilepsy in normal subjects in the subsequent months, the researchers said.

“This is the first-ever approach in which epilepsy development is stopped,” Friedman explained, “as opposed to common drugs that try to prevent seizures once epilepsy develops… so we are excited about the new approach.”

The researcher added that the study provided a new way to potentially prevent epilepsy in patients after brain injuries occurred, and once they had already developed an abnormal blood-brain barrier. The best news, he said, is that the drug stops the epilepsy from starting, rather than simply suppresses the symptoms.
